We were in for a very early dinner so unsure of how noise level will progress as the night goes on. It's a bright, happy restaurant providing good looking food. We had a calamari appetizer that was amazingly light and very flavorful. The kale salad was less successful with the onions in a clump and the kale still very chewy. We will able to take it home and toss it in some olive oil and serve it with a stew. The pizza was light and flavorful. We ordered speck with mushrooms as we're not fond of truffle oil. Overall, a successful evening with a bottal of Quivara (a rather light Zinfandel matching the rest of the very European wine list in that price range. Many items still on the menu to try - rather meat centric. If more fish and seafood options could be added, it would increase our intrest in the restaurant.

Having grown up in Berkeley, We were a little skeptical when we found out the restaurant was on Sacramento, (which is more of a residential area) but we were pleasantly surprised with the ambiance and over all look of the place!

We had the gnudi and Brussels sprouts for appetizers. So I typically hate ricotta cheese but omg the fried gnudi was so good! It was perfectly crispy and creamy with a delicious tomato sauce to accompany it!

For entrees, we shared the parpadelle, gnocchi, agnolotti and the special porterhouse. Everything was absolutely delicious but the gnocchi stole the show for me. They were perfect little pillows that just melt in your mouth. I would go back for that alone.

As for service, our waiter, Ben was nice and attentive. The owner was walking around and checking on every table which was a great touch because you could see he takes pride in his restaurant!

I can’t wait to go back. Yum!

Food is fantastic! Pizza is one of the best!

We ordered mushroom pizza, roasted chicken, Brussels sprouts and shishito peppers for dinner and ended the meals with a very delicious dessert - panna cotta.

First time for us but will definitely go back very often! One of the finest Italian restaurants in Berkeley!

Disappointing. First, they did not have my favorite Creekwood dish, the stuffed calamari. That is, to me, the highlight of their menu, and until it reappears there, I will not be eating at Creekwood. Then, the Lmb Shank simply did not tast like lamb. It was also served in unusual fashion, not in the form of a whole shank, but as a kind of cross-section of a shank, with the bone vertical and centered. I don't mind the unusual presentation, but I order it because I love lamb, and this rendition did not taste like lamb. My wife observed that her Gnocchi were not pasta, but largely of even entirely potato; this should have been noted on the menu.

Nice folks, good service. Menu could be more interesting. Eggs, hash browns, bacon were fine. Biscuit could have been better. Nice space.

The food and service here are fantastic! Brunch is delicious. The biscuit beignets are dangerously tasty, especially with honey. Creekwood’s fried chicken sandwich with a fried egg added is the best I’ve had anywhere. I would also highly recommend the biscuit breakfast and the French toast. Excellent coffee too! Easy street parking close to the restaurant.

Been meaning to try Creekwood for a year, but finally got the opportunity - me and our daughter took my wife to dinner for her birthday. Service was prompt, friendly, and professional. Food was really good - probably will make a couple different menu selections next time, but everything looked so good that we will confidently order. Great neighborhood spot.

High prices for zero-interest food. We've tried 5 different items in the menu, none was interesting. Even half price, we would have been disappointed. And we live in the neighborhood, so willing to like this new restaurant. Having a limited menu (4 entrees, 4 appetizers, etc) should allow the cook to offer a much better quality. Very nice staff and good vibes, though.

Lovely service, delicious food for our small staff holiday dinner. We broke a glass, and staff cleaned right away and even replaced the salad that may have caught shrapnel - we didn't even ask! The almond cake was awesome. Thank you, Creekwood.

We went for brunch - the biscuit and gravy breakfast was very good, although the poached eggs were a little underdone. Their breakfast that carries their name was ho hum - soggy hash browns never impress me. Overall good quality ingredients, great service but not worth the 30 min drive for us.

We have been three times and thoroughly enjoyed it. They need to get the word out because this place is almost unknown. The food is really good. It's very nice inside and the location is easy to find with plenty of nearby parking. I tell everyone about it b/c I want them to stay in business!

Found this place randomly on Google and so glad I did. Service was attentive and food was outstanding! Fairly small place but as soon as I stepped in, you could smell the freshly made food. Environment was warm and inviting, perfect on one of the Bay's chillier nights. Definitely recommend! Even heard another patron ask the host where he could leave a review because him and his party had a great time as well. Will definitely be back 😊

Sort of up-scale vibe but great value and warm atmosphere like a down-home neighborhood restaurant. It's very pretty in the dining room!
Portions are generous. Consider sharing one entre and then enjoying a couple of appetizers or sides. Everything is delicious.
Great wait and busing staff.

Brunch was very good. We had a large party (7) and our reservation was just after an even larger party. We had to wait longer than expected even though we had a reservation but the logistics of the situation was that many people were enjoying their brunch and that many tables were not readily available with two large parties in the restaurant at the same time. The manager was very gracious and bought a round of drinks for the entire party which we enjoyed on a beautiful Sunday morning outside. Once seated the wait staff was awesome and the food even better. We had a wonderful brunch catching up with old friends who had not seen each other in a while. Kudos to the staff for making a tough situation into a great experience.

Enjoyed a pre-show dinner before going to the Zellerbach. Simple, clean, utilitarian space. Straightforward menu, simple preparation of quality ingredients. Shared a Salad, Pizza (nice blister char) Pasta and a side of veggies. A single glass of white. Dessert. The bill was over $100. not including gratuity. Everything was prepared well and was tasty. Service was swift and efficient. We will return.
